About this Wine
Hunter Valley, NSW
Deep purple with vivid violet hues.
Intense red forest fruits, plum, subtle spice and the iconic Rosehill florals.
Plummy and perfectly medium-bodied. Ripe red fruits dominate the fore, but a tight tannin structure brings balance with subtle spice.

The Real Review
"Deep-set red plum and sooty, earthy aromas, the palate tight and firm, with medium to full body and a tight tannin grip. It's very firm and highly tensioned for its weight. An elegant style of Hunter. Very good, needs time, and will reward keeping."

The Wine Front
"So silky, so effortless, such a beautiful expression of vineyard and vintage. Classic rose perfume, cherry and red fruits, subtle vanilla oak, and a wee bit of liquorice. Tannin is fine grained and supple, red fruits and boysenberry, perfect crispness of acidity, flowing from front to long finish with effortless charm. It will be magnificent in years to come. Site to glass with no static. Yes."

"It's not a 'look at me' wine, but it's so beautifully well fruited, balanced and flavoured. This is a seriously good option for the cellar. The tannin is ripped with earth and coffee notes, the fruit is black-cherried and bountiful, it's svelte of texture and sustained through the finish. It's both faultless and characterful and, all things considered, is extremely well priced."
